Abstract

In this chapter, we discuss the operational challenges and opportunities in omnichannel retail, specifically with respect to fulfillment, pricing, and inventory management. We provide a historical perspective of the evolution of omnichannel operations and the challenges associated with the different stages of this evolution. We also provide an overview of three mathematical models: managing split shipments in fulfillment optimization, jointly optimizing markdown and fulfillment, and inventory optimization in the presence of demand spillover.
